A plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Pilling yesterday (Thursday).

The pilot and passenger aboard the Cessna 152 walked away unscathed after the aircraft got into difficulty at around 12.45pm as it flew into the Cockerham area.

Emergency services were put on standby and scrambled to a field near Pilling Sands after the pilot radioed Blackpool Airport for help.

The plane landed intact soon after.
